Abstract

We compliment the team of investigators from Mumbai, India, for their critical evaluation of the utility of a peripheral blood smear examination, an immunochromatographic antigen test and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) towards diagnosis of malaria, though the utility of any point-of-care (POC) test to diagnose malaria would be unpredictable at very high and very low ambient temperatures.
